支持的客户 太阳来了 by purchasing one-time solar blocks for an event or monthly blocks that supplement their energy consumption, make it possible for 坦帕电 to build 和 maintain eight community-网站d solar arrays. Looks for these installations that are generating clean energy right here in the 坦帕 Bay area 和 learn more about how solar energy is produced 和 used throughout 佛罗里达州中西部.
佛罗里达 Conservation 和 Technology Center
The 佛罗里达 Conservation 和 Technology Center in 阿波罗海滩, 佛罗里达州有60个,000瓦交流太阳能电池阵列. This location was chosen for one of our many arrays due to its proximity to 坦帕电's 海牛观赏中心 (MVC) 和 the Suncoast Youth Conservation Center that offers year-round opportunities for public education. The system provides a canopy over visitors waiting to take a shuttle to 和 from the MVC.
Earth Day 2014 marked the day representatives from 乐高乐园 佛罗里达 和 坦帕电 flipped the switch on a 坦帕电-owned 27,000 watt AC solar photovoltaic (PV) system installed atop 乐高乐园'S Imagination Zone. A PV system this size is capable of generating enough electricity from the sun to power three average-sized homes 和 offset about 40 tons of carbon dioxide per year – equivalent to planting more than nine acres of trees. 看到 大型太阳能 网站.
坦帕电's 海牛观赏中心 in 阿波罗海滩, 佛罗里达 (near 坦帕电's 大弯电站) is home to a 40-panel, 37,230 watt AC system installed atop the 海牛观赏中心's education building. It includes 16 pole-mounted arrays consisting of 10 panels each, located throughout the parking area.
Meacham Urban Farm is an organic farm at the outskirts of downtown 坦帕. It's there that our bright 佛罗里达 sunshine is helping crops grow 和 will be teaching kids about clean solar energy. At the edge of the farm we've installed a solar "Curve" – a sun-storing array that resembles a giant flower. Curve有自己的电池, so visitors can charge their phones while watching free-range chickens roam or learning about sustainable farming methods.
一所数学学校, 科学, 工程与技术, 米德尔顿高中举办了一场8,925 watt AC solar panel system as part of the school's curriculum. In case of a natural disaster or other emergency, the system also provides supplemental power for the Red Cross shelter located in this school. This 60-solar panel system has battery backup for overnight uses 和 is the largest contained within any 佛罗里达 school.
At 坦帕's 科学与工业博物馆 (MOSI), you can explore 坦帕电's first solar panel system. The system is directly connected to the same electrical infrastructure that sends electricity to your home or business. In 2020, MOSI added two solar "Curve" charging stations that also send power to the community.
在坦帕的Channelside区, the 佛罗里达 Aquarium's Explore-A-Shore pavilion hosts a 8,602 watt AC solar array that helps support 坦帕电's 太阳选择 program. In addition to the solar installation, 坦帕电 和 the 佛罗里达 Aquarium installed an interactive display to teach children about the benefits of solar energy.
坦帕电 joined with 劳瑞公园的坦帕动物园 和 the University of South 佛罗里达's Power Center for Utility Explorations on a 12,793 watt AC solar panel system at the zoo. The solar panels are installed atop an elephant shade structure 和 an adjacent maintenance building. The project includes a Renewable Energy Learning Center that provides research opportunities for USF 和 坦帕电 to study the technical, economic 和 environmental benefits of a renewable, grid-connected photovoltaic system for Smart Grid electric power production.
作为1美元的一部分.5 million investment to encourage customers to install solar technologies, 坦帕电 joined with the 佛罗里达 太阳能 Center's SunSmart E-Shelter program to coordinate the installation of five solar PV systems at select schools throughout 佛罗里达州中西部. To qualify for the 10 kilowatt or larger system, each school had to be designated as an emergency shelter.
The donated systems provide electricity for emergency power, help reduce the school's electricity costs throughout the year 和 provide scientific data that can be analyzed by the students. Here are the five schools to that received a solar PV system:
